Summarize the points made in the lecture, being sure to explain how they cast doubt on specific points made in the reading passage.
The reading and the lecture are both about, working schedule. The author states that, it is more relevant option for companies to offer 4 day workweek with less pay in order to benefit economy. The lecturer casts doubt on the main points made in the reading ,by providing three examples. First of all, according to the reading this new offering, is more profitible for company because workers can have more free time, and feel more refreshed.However the lecturer disputes this idea, he says that companies need to spend more money, in order to cover health insurance, and training for employess.Furthermore he thinks ,there will be problem for space and additional computers to hire more employees and providing this, they can have issues with money. Secondly the reading states that this idea, is acceptable because there can be more job oppurtunities for employees. Nevertheless the lecturer arguments with this point, he argues that as he mentioned before getting new employes is costly, therefore the company will raise her expectations for work, because sometimes workers need to work more hours to get the same result, and doing work overtime is not one of the pleasnt things to do. Finaly reading claims that short work week can improve workers life quality. On the other hand lecturer refutes this point, he says that four day work can decrease employes ability for job.Morever he feels that it is bad for there career to work less, and rest a lot. In conclusion the reading and the lecture are both about working 4 days a week. the three reasons point out in the reading, are effectively challenged by the lecturer.
